Bobby Sands Biography Early Years A hero among Irish nationalists, Robert Gerard "Bobby" Sands was born in Belfast, Ireland on March 9, 1954. Bobby Sands was the oldest of four children born to John and Rosaleen Sands, and the couple's first son. At an early age, Sands's life was affected by the sharp divisions that shaped Northern Ireland. At the age of 10, he was forced to move with his family out of their neighborhood due to repeated intimidation by British loyalists. "I was only a working-class boy from a Nationalist ghetto," Sands later wrote about his childhood. Loyalist intimidation proved to be a theme in Sands's life. Activism The steady number of conflicts pushed Sands to join the Republican Movement in 1972. In late 1976, authorities arrested Sands again, this time in connection with a bombing that had taken place at a large furniture company, and an ensuing gun battle. As a prisoner, Sands's stature only grew. Death and Legacy

St. Patrick’s Day | Mias klassrum Det finns oändligt mycket man kan klämma in i realian i engelskan eftersom språket talas i så många länder.

I år satte jag ihop en kort presentation som avslutades med en liten video och ett quiz i Kahoot. Totalt tog det ca 40-45 minuter, jag körde lektionen i både år 7 och år 9. I texterna finns flera småsaker att lyfta fram: centuries/århundraden, BC/AD, latinska ordstammar som pater i Patrick och patron saint, religionsbitar som the holy trinity och definitionen av begrepp som helgon och republik. Presentationen finns att hämta hem här, samma CC som vanligt. Prezi – St.
